Chad - Urban Development Project (English)

The proposed project on the Chad - Urban Development Project will finance priority infrastructure (water, drainage, and economic infrastructure) in N'Djamena, Moundou, Sarh, Abeche, and Doba to address partially the significant infrastructure gaps these cities are facing. By packaging public works appropriately and using labor-intensive methods whenever possible, the project will create employment opportunities for unskilled and semi-skilled labor and promote Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in construction and urban services. Further, the project will improve capacity at the local level to plan, manage, and maintain infrastructure and services, and will support capacity to foster urban development at the central level. The project will have two components: (i) strengthening municipal and urban management capacity; and (ii) provision of urban infrastructures and services. The first component is to strengthen the capacity o f the local governments in N'Djamena, Moundou, Sarh, Abeche, and Doba to plan and manage the development and the delivery of infrastructure and urban services and to increase their financial resources in order to maintain existing and new infrastructure. This component has 2 sub-components: (a) sub-component 1 will strengthen urban and municipal capacities in the respective municipalities through workshops, technical assistance, studies, training, and provision of equipment; and (b) sub-component 2 will strengthen the capacity of the central administration and de-concentrated ministries to support the municipalities. The second component is to increase access to urban infrastructure. By implementing activities that are part of the project, sanitary conditions will be improved and opportunities for unskilled and semi-skilled labor will be created.
